Kaepernick, Strong Defense Help Establish 49ers Among NFL’s Best In 2013

Although they made a deeper playoff push a year ago, the 2013 season for the 49ers was far from a letdown. The team continued to improve each week, and heading into the off season know that they have a quarterback and defense that is going to make them contenders for years to come.

49ers Want Payback In Rematch With Carolina Panthers

Newton Needs Panthers Players To Step Up

The Carolina Panthers had to win the last game of the season to get the NFC South title and a first-round bye so it’s not like it was a time they could rest their players. Steve Smith had to sit out with an injury, and there were not a lot of other options for Cam Newton to rely on, but there need to be.

Which Team Is The Best Opponent for Seattle?

Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?
